Mud on the Mountain offers athletes a chance to get down and dirty atop the beautiful Laurel Highlands, but you’ll have trouble seeing them after the sun goes down. The seven mile mud run course winds its way up, down and through some of the most challenging terrain in Pennsylvania.
If you are ready to tackle the Laurel Highlands, Mud on the Mountain is the event for you. Join scores of others as you test what you are made of on the slopes at Seven Springs Mountain Resort, the largest ski and four-season resort in Pennsylvania. We will equip you with headlamps before we send you out in waves starting at 9 p.m. Scale boulder fields, climb over obstacles and claw up impossible inclines on your way to a triumphant finish! Be on the look out for some special features that will not only test your body but also your fear of the dark. All of your senses will be pushed to their thresholds.
After working to destroy your body, stick around for the Recovery Party in the Foggy Goggle, pamper yourself in the Trillium Spa and dine in one of the resort’s amazing restaurants, including Helen's, which offers upscale dining in a uniquely rustic setting.
We are going to add some more great obstacles to the past set of challenges used on Mud on the Mountain and we are going to add more MUD to everything. We plan to offer 25 chances for you to test your strength and get filthy in the process. Details to come.
Packet pick-up will be open 5-10 p.m., Sat., August 16, in Festival Hall. Please remember to bring both an ID and a signed copy of your waiver with you. You can download a pdf of the waiver here. Please plan on arriving at least an hour before your wave.
Sperctator passes will not be available for Mud in the Dark.
We have parking for thousands of cars on the mountain. Help the environment, and help ease the congestion on the mountain, by riding with a friend. If you are staying with us on the mountain you will have reserved parking near the hotel.
No need to worry about where to stash your dry clothes or your camera while you are slogging though the toughest seven miles of your life. We will keep your stuff nice and dry in our bag check area.
To make sure you get the most out of your weekend including early registration Friday night and the Recovery Party, plan to spend the weekend at Seven Springs Mountain Resort!
